B picked up a doll-sized hoop chair while out thrifting! Noe and Henri are testing it out 😀
Noe’s dress is by Maggie/Parasol Doll ❤
an ordinary girl's strange adventures in dollyland since 2003
Caitlyn hasn’t been photographed in a while, I thought it appropriate for her to wear this amazing schoolhouse dress made by Melissa/Super*Junk. I’ve been hoarding this dress since October 2010 and didn’t open the pkg until now, haha.
Since I got her all dressed up, we had to go outside to take advantage of the spring flowers in the yard! I was on my knees and got covered in pollen (thank goodness I’m not allergic to pollen!), but I loved how the photos turned out. Dollies and flowers are just so perfect to photograph together.
My contribution to Blythe Fest 2013 in Sydney. I hope whoever ends up with it will like it!
Lovely little signature xoxoBlythe sweater dress is knitted in Peruvian Highland wool in lime green, accented with a velveteen ribbon. Snap closure in the back. Head band made of a pale-green velventeen ribbon, elastic, felt leaves, and a vintage navy blue floral button from my personal collection.
Thanks so much Angelique and the folks at Blythe Fest for asking me, it was an honor to be a sponsor!
Hi Gibby! ^___^
She may look familiar to you… yes it’s Gibby, my Tailor Gibson! I decided to send her over to Kate at Chantilly Lace Customs for a makeover. I’ve always adored Kate’s work, so I was really happy to get on her wait list and so excited when she contacted me to send Gibby over!
Kate did such a great job. Gibby has such a lovely little smile that I can’t stop looking at her! Kate worked with me to really make Gibby just the way I wanted. I love her earthy coloring and all her eye colors too. Gibby arrived just in time for Christmas, and it felt like she was a brand new dolly again. I am so happy with how she turned out.
Oh my! How much more Middie cuteness can you handle?!
Apparently, I couldn’t resist after three or so years. I had been avoiding Middies at doll meets because, well, I just didn’t want to get sucked in! But after seeing a few at the most recent meet, I caved.
I just happened to catch a last-minute order at HLJ for Jackie Ramone before they were sold out.
I think her name is going to be Scout…!
We had the best time at the Valentine’s Tea Meet today! Deeya / Mismatchfusion was so generous to open her home to us and our girls. Lots of great food, great people, and wonderful dolls all together, plus a raffle to end the afternoon! It was so very perfect.
More Photos in my Flickr set!
I took Alex outside in the yard with me on a nice Spring evening, a little before the sun was about to set. The hour before sunset is the “Magic Hour,” because the light is just really amazing.
I’m really happy with her! Her coloring is lovely and she photographs so well with all the spring flowers in my yard!
Alex with some blooming alstroemeria.
All the traipsing around is tiring! Let’s take a nap on the grass 😀
Have a lovely day everyone!

Meet Alex, a new xoxoBlythe girl!
Alex arrived sometime last week. I haven’t brought a new girl into the family since Summer 2010 so she was a breath of fresh air “Where did she come from? What kind of Blythe is she?” You may ask. Well, her exact origins are unknown – Alex is a little mystery. A very nice friend arranged for Alex to travel from Asia to San Francisco and then to LA to join the xoxoBlythe household. All I know is, she has had enough traveling and is ready to settle down for good.
